Anyone out there ever heard of Marble Falls, Texas? Home of country star John Arthur Martinez and NCAA 1500m champion Leonel Manzano? Well if you’re into triathlons you might want to introduce yourself this weekend.
The 10th Annual Marble Falls Triathlon occurs this Sunday, July 18. It’s a 1 km swim, 23 mile bike ride, and a 4.4 mile run. Marble Falls sits on the edge of Lake Marble Falls, which is wear the swim will take place. The biking route winds through the scenic Texas hill country surrounding Marble Falls. Biking through the Texas Hill Country is a joy in itself with its rolling landscape and lush greenery. This year should be more visually appealing than the others, on account of the abundance of rain the hill country has had this season.
Post activities include catered events from local restaurants. I can only hope that The Bluebonnet Cafe is one of those establishments: they have the best chicken fried steak I have ever had.
FramesDirect’s own Jack Mott and his wife Kat Hunter have entered the Triathlon. Kat will be sporting a pair of Oakley Women’s Half Jacket to block the sun and improve her vision for the race. Here are a few pics of Jack and Hunter at the Capital of Texas Triathlon last year. For more information on the Marble Falls race, click here.
